To the family of Tim Perry
Sorry to hear about your loss. Tim and I worked a lot together throughout his career in Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and especially around the Milwaukee area. He seemed able to solve the machine problems for the various crews I was foreman of.
Sincerely,
Kipling Smith from Decorah, IA

Tim was a great guy... I had the pleasure to work with him on several occasions and in many capacities.... even on his “home turf” back in the day. Always one to put a smile on your face and brighten your day. Hope there’s a brand new S-10 with your name on it in heaven (a little inside joke). My deepest condolences to the family.

Tim was like a younger brother to me when I was younger. We had so much fun together with our group of friends. Glad I got to see him and talk and meet Christy a few months ago. I have been praying for Tim and family and will continue to do so. Love you forever Tim. ♥️

I will most definitely miss your mouthy ass, always pickin a fight with me over anything and everything. Teaching me how to drive a skid steer, to changing the glow plugs on the ford to griping at me because you let me mow and I ran over a log. I will always remember the times we had ❤️ Morgan and I miss and love you ❤️❤️

Tim would drive all the way from Indiana to western Minnesota for work. 15 hr drive one way. He and Jim would go home every weekend.
He was always on time and never missed work. He was an honest stand up guy and was dedicated to being the best he could be. After working with Tim for a few years I was fortunate to become friends with him.
My prayers go out to the family!
